Everyone is talking about ketogenic diets now, and for good reason - a low-carb, high-fat nutritional approach is a highly effective way to lower blood sugar and insulin levels, reduce inflammation, increase energy, stabilise mood, and so much more. But far too many people are trying to go keto without shifting the focus of their diet to real, whole foods. That's what Real Food Keto attempts to educate readers about, explaining the reasons why whole foods are a critical element in optimising your pursuit of nutritional ketosis.
Anatomy & Yoga is a complete work that introduces the yoga tradition from a practical and scientific point of view. It is aimed at students, teachers, people who practice yoga, and those who want to familiarize themselves with this millennia-old practice. Combining science and tradition, this book explains the history of yoga--the classical texts and their traditions--50 classical yoga postures (asanas) as well as variations and adaptations for safe practice; proper breathing, including basic breathing exercises (pranayama); and the important yoga aspect of inner development. Along with clear and informative content, this book contains an anatomical and physiological description of the human body and relevant information about the energetic anatomy--in other words, an explanation of the human body and the chakras. For each asana, the precautions and the gained physical, psychological, and energetic benefits are listed. In addition, each asana is accompanied by images illustrating the exercise and anatomical drawings showing in detail the main muscles used in each posture. With information on relaxation practice, mudras, and meditation, Anatomy & Yoga allows you to penetrate a little deeper into yoga and, starting from the physical discipline, helps you experience yoga as a spiritual discipline.

Scientific studies show that the mind/body connection has an extraordinary power to heal. Ageless Body, Timeless Mind goes beyond ancient mind/body wisdom and current anti-aging research to show you do not have to grow old. With the passage of time, you can retain your physical vitality, creativity, memory and self-esteem. Dr Deepak Chopra bases his theories on the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda, according to which, optimum health is about achieving balance physically, emotionally and psychologically, and demonstrates that, contrary to our traditional beliefs about aging, we can use our innate capacity for balance to direct the way our bodies metabolize time and achieve our unbounded potential.

Finding balance in life is a goal many of us strive to achieve. Whether it's through a healthy diet, exercise regimen, state of mind, relationship, or other activity (or all of the above), we spend our days trying to be, and become, our best selves. But what happens when all that focus starts to dominate our lives? When our desire for "perfect health" trumps everything else, perhaps without us even realizing it? What happens when our solution starts becoming the problem? These are questions that author and popular blogger Jordan Younger faced when she decided that her extreme, plant-based lifestyle just wasn't working in favor of her health anymore--and questions that you may be facing too. In Breaking Vegan, Jordan reveals how obsessive "healthy" dieting eventually led her to a diagnosis of orthorexia, or a focus on healthy food that involves other emotional factors and ultimately becomes dysfunctional, even dangerous. In candid detail, Jordan shares what it was like to leave veganism, the downfall of her desire to achieve nutritional perfection, and how she ultimately found her way to recovery. In addition to this, Jordan outlines an "anti-diet," whole-foods-based eating plan featuring more than 25 recipes to help inspire others to find similar balance in their own lives. Breaking Vegan is about tolerance and forgiveness. And ultimately, forging one's own path toward happiness.
Even though we have access to more medical and health information than ever before, food and nutrition continually faces the challenge of misinformation and misconceptions. Do vegetarians live longer? Are thin people healthier than fat ones? Is sugar our enemy? What's better butter or margarine? Do adults need to drink milk? Is sea salt better for you than regular salt? Does detoxing clear your body out? Are foods labelled as natural healthier for you? These are just some of the thoughts we tackle in this carefully researched, practical guide to food myths. This book goes behind food labelling and packaging to present the facts in language everyone can understand.

Body Learning has been a steady bestseller since it was first published in 1981. This new and updated edition confirms its status as the classic work on the Alexander Technique. The Alexander Technique is now recognised the world over as the most revolutionary and far-reaching method ever developed for maintaining the health and efficiency of the human body. It is not only a means of putting us in touch with our bodies, but also a way of deepening our perceptions and general well-being. Its effects on all aspects of living and learning are profound. Body Learning supplies answers to the most commonly asked questions about the Alexander Technique, provides a glossary of significant terms, and a guide to dynamic relaxation. Qualified Alexander teacher Michael Gelb provides inspiration and guidance for newcomers to the technique and conveys a full understanding of the complex mental and physical dynamics involved. Rather than a method to accumulate information or learn something specifically new, the Alexander Technique is better thought of as the art of 'unlearning' that which is habitual instead of natural, and in doing so, reclaiming some of our individual agency. Gelb's book offers an unbeatable introduction to the key facets of this enduring, yet ever-developing theory.

This practical and beneficial 21-day program will give you, no matter how overworked you are, the stamina and commitment to develop a world-class career.
